I was wary to try running shorts because all shorts I've ever owned ever, in the history of my life, have ridden up and been uncomfortable. After reading the reviews of these shorts on several websites and from seemingly people my size, I decided to give them a try. I figured if they didn't work for running, they would at least be okay for lounging around. I wore them to run today and they did ride up and after a while they did chafe, and I didn't even run two miles. Like I said, I like them for lounging around, and they don't ride up when I'm walking, but I don't think I will run in them again. Unlike some of the other reviewers I did not think they were too short. They are very comfortable, even with the brief lining, which I did not have experience with. Before going back to strictly compression shorts, I think I'll try the Nike Phantom shorts, which have a compression layer underneath them. Other than that, I'm pleased with the fit and the material of the shorts, as I usually am with Nike products. And shipping was fast and painless with Zappos as usual!

These shorts are super comfortable, moisture wicking, and light. Everything I love about athletic shorts from Nike and are my go-to choice for working out, hiking, or just hanging out. The built-in panty is nice too- it is breathable and you do not notice is it there. Love these Nike shorts!

I bought these shorts in a 3x and they are loose enough to enjoy wearing all day long. They are breathable, have the built in "underwear", and sit at about half my thigh. I ordered a size larger than necessary, which I recommend for anyone purchasing Nike brand clothing. I wish they were a tad bit longer and offered more colors and patterns, but that's not Zappos' fault! As always, speedy delivery, thank you!

Best walking/running shorts ever for plus size! Legs are generous in room and figure flattering. Elastic waist that adjusts to size. Great fabric. Just wish Nike would offer in more color combinations like they do for regular sizes. Get on board Nike!

Absolutely love! Arrived quickly. As far as length they fit like normal tempo shorts so I'm not sure what the surprise from other reviews are all about. Very true to plus sizing. I normally bounce between a 2x and 3x depending on brand. Ordered a 3x, fits a little big, which is what I had hoped for. Legs fit very loosely so if you chose to wear anything, like tights, underneath they will fit comfortably. A+ on Nike's part. I hope to see more colors soon!

Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for. Not sure why some people said they are too short, they are just right. Only rises when you sit down.

I'm in love with shorts! They are so comfortable and great to run,walk, swim and bike. They do fit a little big but I like my stuff a little big. I'm a bigger girl and I feel really comfortable in them. I wear them everywhere and now that summer here I will have to order more!

These shorts are so comfortable! I have a large butt and jean shorts never fit me right. These are so great because they are loose, and east to move in. I definitely recommend getting these, even if you just wear them around the house.

Straight up, I am a big girl and hate shopping for shorts! This shorts were perfect for what I needed. I ordered a 3x and they are loose, but not too loose(use the measurement chart!). I wear them for no gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I put them over a pair a jogging leggings/Capri things. They stayed put during my fight and were loose enough for me to maneuver in. I love them! I will probably order more if they ever have different colors. I wish they weren't that pricey.

These are great for wearing with a swim suit! I never feel comfortable just wearing a swim suit to the water park and these are perfect for that. They dry fast and hold up all summer. True to size. I wear a 1X in all Nike clothes.

This is honestly one of the best pair of shorts I have ever owned! It may be intended for running and exercising but it's ideal for swimming, lounging and sleeping, too. It's stylish and comfortable but the only thing that surprised was that there is a panty attached on the inside of the shorts. It's not uncomfortable or anything, just a bit unnecessary. However, my overall purchase was great and I'm glad that Nike made a plus-size version of these shorts. They're not too short nor too long and flatter any body shape well. It may seem expensive but it was well worth it, especially because Zappos offered 1-Business Day shipping for free! I would highly recommend this to anybody.

I ordered the black pair and I must say that I love these shorts! Very comfortable, cool, and cute! I always saw skinny girls wearing them around campus and I wanted a pair in my size. I am 5'7, with long legs and a short torso and they're not too short on me (they hit at about mid-thigh). Great for going to class in or walking around campus, and lounging. I plan to order more of them.

Cute shorts...but too short. My thighs rub together and that's a deal breaker. I would recommend ordering up a size if you like a lot of room. The panties attached run small.
